Mao Tse-Tung - Hugo Gellert c. 1944

Mao Tse-Tung - Hugo Gellert c. 1944

Hugo Gellert was a member of the Communist Party in the United States who rose to fame in the 1920s and 1930s through his political posters and art as well as illustrations he did for socialist and communist magazines. He was blacklisted during the McCarthy era and opened a gallery for blacklisted artists in New York. Gellert died in 1985.

We looked at his art before in the post: Three Portraits of Lenin 1922 - 1927
